Engagement Party etiquette: invitations
Only one thing is important: the purpose of an engagement party is to celebrate the good news among those people closest to the couple, so immediate family members, close extended family, and the intimate circle of best friends should receive invitations. This is not the time to invite co-workers you only see at the office. That’s why we advised you before to avoid social network announcements, so when you send out your formal engagement invitations at least three weeks before, two or three days before the party you can also place an announcement through social networks and as the date is very close it should be clear enough who is invited. Remember another important thing, whoever is invited to your engagement party should be invited to the wedding too. These two rules differ only if you are having a Destination Wedding but as we’ve previously talked about that, today we will keep it to a traditional engagement party. By tradition, the brides family should organize the engagement party with the father of the bride usually hosting with a main speech to the couple. After that speech other guests can give a toast to the couple.
And as we’ve talked about winter engagement party themes we’ll give you an idea how to make your own invitations according to these two themes and wording examples to put on them.
